Quick, before I get Sidetrack'd

18 months old

Thoughtfully penned on July 28th, 2011 and generally concerning S

The baby (for now) girl is 18 months old!

Now I’m a “big” girl and I…

…am up to 18 lbs 13 oz! Still lower than 5th percentile, but on my own personal growth curve.
…am in the 25th percentile for height now!
…have 12 teeth and seem to have more on the way.
…have lots of words. My favorites all start with “b”, but I’m expanding my vocabulary every day it seems.
…love to climb. Mom says I’m even more of a monkey than my brother.
…love to dance. Especially dancing with my big sister.
…play “ring around the rosie” by myself (often).
…play with my “bay-beesh” and their stroller all the time.
…feel the need to wear shoes and carry a “bahg” as often as possible.
…am very friendly and love to say “hi” to everyone.
…have no clue what I’m in for when I become a big sister in a few days.

Noise from the peanut gallery

  1. It must be a third child thing because Adeline is a MAJOR climber! She can already scale the stairs, get on top of her exersaucer, climb the side of the play pen and is so close to climbing up on the couch. When she can’t get on the couch she finds something (usually the laundry basket) and pushes it over to the couch so she can climb on that and then climb on the couch. We just thought David was a monkey, I’m afraid we are in for it!
    Love the sweet picture of S and her pigtails! We need to see each other soon!

  2. That shoe thing must run in the family. Mema always loved her shoes. Looks like she enoys that shopping thing too! Hope everyone is well, miss you. Love, Aunt Wanda
